I've nearly recovered from the vicious virus so my daughter took me to enjoy some retail therapy at Dunelm, one of a chain of stores, which sell gorgeous household goods.
As it's the time of year when my thoughts turn to refurbishing I bought a pair of mirrors with silvery gold frames to be hung on either side of a window in my sitting room. The mirrors will face larger windows with a view of the front garden. Hopefully they will be very effective.
I also bought some gorgeous cushions, five with cream silk covers, delicately embroidered with Chinese style chrysanthemums and other flowers, and four cushions with cream silk pleated covers.
It's amazing how accessories can give new life to a room.
We enjoyed browsing at Dunelm so much that we will soon return.
